Mom Roberts

Meet Mom Roberts


Carol “Mom” Roberts has served Gamma-Rho as our house mother for more than 25 years.

“Over 25 years ago, I was speaking with one of my girlfriends, who was a housemother for a fraternity chapter. She explained all of the activities that she was involved in and encouraged me to seek a similar position with the Lambda Chis at OU. I was invited to sit for an interview with the House Corporation Board members and several chapter officers. They were such a nice group of people and they offered me the position. My son and daughter supported my decision and looking back it is the best thing I have ever done besides raising children of my own. Through the years I have been impressed with everyone, undergraduates and alumni alike.”

 What are your challenging moments?

“The most challenging is the empty nest feeling when the men graduate and go out into the world. But just a couple of months later there is a new crop of freshmen to watch over. And of course, so many of the men and their wives return for football games and other activities. I receive many telephone calls during the year as they check in to see what is happening with me and the chapter. I am always touched when they tell me, ‘I am glad you are still there.'”
